Pure @ Hout Bay Manor serves breakfast between 7am and 11.45am every morning.  They offer a continental buffet as well as selected  hot dishes. (See breakfast menu).  The seating is located both inside as well as outside on the patio.  On a lovely day, it is suggested you sit outside, as it is a very tranquil setting.

On Order:

2 x Continental Breakfast – R95 each
1 x Eggs Benedict – R60
1 x Manor English Breakfast – R65

All of their breakfasts are accompanied by a glass of sparkling wine, juice and tea or coffee.

The Continental side consisted of the usual fruits, yoghurt, cereal, meats and cheeses, pastries, etc.

It was understandably a very small selection but quality of items were generally very good.  I found it lacked some items which would have made it a true 5 star worthy buffet.  Salmon but no cream cheese?

I found their homemade muesli to be rather tasty, as were their nuts.

The hot food was visually appealing and very tasty.  My poached eggs were cooked to perfection, as was the bacon.  I would have loved a little more hollandaise sauce, as it was rather scarce.

The only thing really lacking about our experience was the service.  Incredibly slow.  Our used plates stayed on the table for ages.

But besides that we enjoyed our time at the Hout Bay Manor and look forward to our return.
